Guenther Steiner Sues Haas F1 Over Unpaid Earnings and Unauthorized Use of Image



Guenther Steiner initiates lawsuit against Haas F1 team for unpaid funds

Guenther Steiner has filed a lawsuit against his previous F1 team, Haas, claiming unpaid earnings.

Guenther Steiner has initiated legal action against his previous team, Haas F1, alleging that he has not been paid money he believes is due to him

Legal filings show that Steiner has initiated a lawsuit against the U.S.-based team where he served as team principal from 2014 to 2023.

Haas decided against extending Steiner's contract and appointed Ayao Komatsu as his replacement for the 2024 season.

The Italian has initiated legal proceedings against Haas, alleging that they failed to pay commissions from 2021 to 2023, as per the legal documents filed in Mecklenburg, North Carolina.

According to legal documents, Haas F1 Team decided against extending Mr. Steiner's contract. This decision was within their prerogative. However, the team is accused of unlawfully withholding payment due to Mr. Steiner, as specified in his contract, an amount which has not been disclosed.

"However, following a period where Haas F1 enjoyed the advantages brought by Mr. Steiner's esteemed standing, expertise, and extensive network in the sport, the team cannot now deny Mr. Steiner the rewards he rightfully deserves."

Documents highlighted that Steiner's fame from the Netflix documentary Drive to Survive was "tremendously beneficial" to Haas.

The series often showcased Haas F1, and the appearance of Mr. Steiner on the show attracted an increasing number of fans to Haas F1.

Gaining this visibility was highly beneficial for the emerging racing squad, especially as it sought new ways to generate income to sustain its operations in the famously costly world of Formula 1.

The legal action further underscores Haas's ongoing sales of merchandise associated with Steiner.

"The documents further stated that Haas F1 is not permitted to utilize or capitalize on Mr. Steiner's name, appearance, and persona across any media platforms following the conclusion of his employment."

"Haas F1 has failed to provide Mr. Steiner with compensation for the unauthorized use of his name, image, and likeness."

Steiner has been seen in the F1 paddock during several races this year, serving as a television analyst.

He hasn't dismissed the possibility of coming back to the sport on a full-time basis.

"Formula 1 is bustling with activities beyond the public eye, and while I'm not privy to everything, I am aware of certain aspects," Steiner shared on The Race podcast.

"If any of these elements become active, I'll be present, and perhaps I'll be suitable for it.

"I don't wake up in the morning with the intention of calling various individuals and advocating for myself to become a team principal of a specific team."
